     Chimay is the best known of the famous Trappist ales from Belgium and
     the Netherlands. Two package types are used: a 33cl(11oz) bottle with
     the standard metal crown and a 75cl(26oz) "Bordeaux" bottle which is
     corked. Three beers are produced by Chimay which differ in character
     and alcoholic strength. They have different names, but are often
     referred to by the color coding of the crown, cork seal, and labeling
     as follows:

     Chimay Red, Rouge, Premiere - 7% abv
     Chimay White, Blanche, Cinq Cents - 8% abv
     Chimay Blue, Bleue- 9% abv (33cl bottle only)
     Chimay Gold, Grande Reserve - This is a vintage bottling of Chimay
     Blue in a 75cl bottle
